Product Description

The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Hour: Volume One (DVD)


The Richie Rich Scooby-Doo Show was a 1980 Saturday morning regular on ABC television and the hour-long program featured three short Richie Rich cartoons based on the Harvey comics, a very brief Richie Rich Gem, and three short Scooby Doo cartoons with Scooby, Shaggy, and Scooby's nephew Scrappy. This two-disc compilation contains the first seven episodes of the season and finds Richie Rich, his dog Dollar, and robot maid Irona in every imaginable sort of predicament and Scooby, Shaggy, and Scrappy in one spooky locale after another. Richie's extensive home security system is constantly being tested by thieves and updated by the absent-minded Professor Keenbean in episodes like "Piggy Bank Prank," "Robot Nappers," and "The Blur" and Richie's robot maid Irona can always be counted upon to ensure Richie's safety, whether nursing him to health in "Silence is Golden," stopping an out of control road builder in "Constructo," or battling a potential robot replacement in "Miss Robot America." What shines far brighter than the simple safeguarding of wealth throughout each of the episodes is Richie's unfailing devotion to friends, family, and doing good. Everyone knows that Scooby, Shaggy, and Scrappy have an uncanny knack for stumbling upon the creepiest, scariest situations possible and there are plenty of creepy ghouls, scary chase scenes, and funny moments in this compilation which includes "Swamp Witch," "Mummy's the Word," and "Scooby's Bull Fight" among others. What's unique about these Scooby Doo episodes is that they do not include Fred, Daphne, and Velma in the cast like the Scooby-Doo, Where are You? and What's New, Scooby-Doo? series and Scooby, Shaggy, and Scrappy don't really solve mysteries in these episodes as much as careen from one scary situation to another. While these classic cartoons seem dated at times (gas is referenced as "over $1 a gallon" in one Richie Rich episode, and the animation just can't compete with contemporary animation), both programs are classics that will appeal both to adults who grew up in the 1970s and 1980s and a whole new generation of children.

I suppose I'll write the first review now that the product has actually been released. I consider myself a child of the 80s, although this 1980 series pre-dates my ability to remember the original airing by at least a couple of years. However, having watched the set I recognize several of the episodes from later syndication and remember enjoying these a lot.

We have here two dual-layer (no double-sided) DVDs. The contents are divided into individual Richie Rich and Scooby Doo show segments, ranging from 7 to 12 minutes in length. Extra short Richie Rich "Gem" segments are appended to the end of the previous cartoon and are not listed in the menu. The cartoons from each hour episode are presented in sequential order in the menu. There is the ever-present "Play All" option, but there doesn't appear to be a way to select and play full hour episodes. The first cartoon from each episode has the original opening sequence, including mixed theme music and mixed animation of Richie and Scooby characters. The last cartoon from each hour has two separate closing credits in sequence -- not sure if one or both are original.

The cartoons pertaining to each hour episode are listed on the inside cover of the DVD jacket. The Richie cartoons do not appear to have title cards, just generic "Riches", "Treasure Chest" and "Zillion-Dollar Adventures" segment titles, so the actual cartoon titles are only visible in the menu and the jacket, and where they come from is anyone's guess (syndication titles maybe?).

I find the Richie Rich cartoons to be rather fun. The character designs are improved slightly from the comic book and Richie seems a bit older.

Warner Bros needs to finish what it starts and release the complete series. It's frustrating to only get one third of something (i.e. Richie Rich/Scooby Doo Show ran for 2 seasons with 21 total episodes. This Volume 1 DVD only contains 7 of those 21 shows). WB has to consider who their target audience is. Most people who collect sets like these are fans of the show and want more than just part of Season 1.

I'm sure that sales figures and costs are the main driver behind whether they decide to release a second, third, or fourth set of DVD's. With shows like the Flintstones you get all 6 seasons. With the Smurfs you get Season 1, and then 60 percent of season two, and nothing of the 8 seasons after that. I can see that costs exceed profits if you don't have high enough demand for a show that runs 10 seasons - like the Smurfs. However, with the Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo show, they really only need to release one or two more volumes (14 more episodes) to complete the series. They could probably do it cheaper with one volume that has double sided discs. You would think that they would make the extra effort to satisfy their customers, even if it means narrower profit margins. I would think that if complete series were released for all of the H-B shows, that sales would be higher than they are for just Volume 1's of everything. Furthermore, why label something as "Volume 1" if there is nothing to follow? That is kind of misleading to consumers, leading them to believe that if they purchase an item that they can expect to get more of that series in the future. If you are not planning on releasing the rest of the series, then don't call it "Volume 1". I understand the numbers behind your decisions, but consumer satisfaction is something that you are not considering. Please WB, go the extra mile and finish the series !!!

After releasing Scooby Doo Season 3, Space Ghost, Birdman, & Josie & The Pussycats last year, Hanna Barbera is starting to get back to basics. The February 26th release for the first part of Season 1 of the Smurfs is exciting. And the March 18th release for the complete series for The Pebbles & Bamm Bamm Show is also exciting.

But I am so happy to see another Scooby Doo series coming to DVD! And I like Scrappy! He's absolutely adorable! I am excited for this release on May 20th! But, I am still anticipating the releasing of these titles: Wally Gator, Huckleberry Hound Volume 2, Secret Squirrel, Speed Buggy, The Jetsons Season 2, & Quick Draw McGraw.

Releasing three or four DVDs a year is not enough, when back in 2004 or 2005, they would release six or seven DVDs a year, so all I can say is: KEEP THEM COMING!

As a 1970s child (growing up on 1970s TV, of course) this is one of the *few* 1980s cartoons I have loads of fond memories of (minus the "Scooby trio" here, doing nothing but bungling and bumbling their way thru every ep. The original 1969 S-D had more class, more pizazz). Anyways, I grew up with BOTH the comic book as well as the cartoon, where I watched every ep. (religiously) and, let me say, it really knows how to stay true to the original (where you see Richie rescuing Gloria, or Reggie pulling one of his countless pranks, only to backfire on him, and so on). However, one main difference here also has the storylines of Jonny Quest with the quirky gadgets/inventions of the Jetsons mixed in (two earlier H-B creations). Even Season 3, as I remember it, really had a LOT OF HEART.
One ep. shows Irona, the Riches' maid, wanting to try her hand at sports instead of just keeping house 24/7. Richie coaches her, only she ends up breaking one world record after another. So, by the end, Irona does her "weightlifting" event, where she actually lifts heavy inanimate objects from the mansion (like a piano, a statue) with the Rich family and staff acting as judges, holding up score cards and applauding. Richie then hugs Irona and says "These are the only critics you should listen to, Irona, people who love you the most!" (Awww, how sweet and nothing sugary about it, either.)

Other eps. also have Richie and co. (namely Gloria and Dollar) trying to catch villains and crooks of every type out there, from ruthless bug-like space aliens, to eccentric oddballs, such as the Giggler and Mr. Dirty, and to the baddies straight out of the comic book pages, like the Onion, Dr. Disguise, and the Shocking Lady.
